I Was Blown Away By The Things You Can Do With Normal Ritz Crackers

If you never had Ritz Crackers as a kid, you seriously missed out on snacking. There was no wrong way to enjoy them – whether you threw some cheese on top, or maybe a little peanut butter, they were always a perfect, simple snack.

But just because Ritz are simple (and reminiscent of our childhood lunch boxes), doesn’t mean you can’t use them in tons of awesome, tasty, and grown-up recipes. Once you see these snacks, desserts, and even full meals, you might rethink the possibility of all your childhood treats.

These little crackers are way more versatile than you ever knew…
